Orient can't wait to find his special forever family. He's one of our beloved deaf pooches here at the shelter, and he can't wait to meet you! Orient is a wiggly, happy pup who has a lot of energy. He's looking for a family with an active lifestyle to keep him on the go. Orient needs a little help learning some manners, and he would greatly benefit from taking a special training course for deaf dogs. He would love to have a large home where he can run around and have a good time!

Deaf dogs are trainable!
Just like other dogs, deaf dogs learn hand commands and tricks. While they will never have the same recall skills as a hearing dog, they are just as trainable and obedient and make great pets.

Deafness is often found in "all white" dogs. It seems that "hearing cells" originate from the same cell family as pigment producing cells. Thus, the same deficiency that causes a lack of pigment may also reduce the dog's hearing. To learn more about deaf dogs, visit http://www.deafdogs.org/

Go-Getter
Want to get more exercise? Action is my middle name. My 'let's GO!' lifestyle will keep you motivated to get outside and move. I've got tons of energy, and just like the sun, I'm burning and working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I'll run for miles, chase a ball for hours, and still want to play at the end of the day.
